Community Services

In addition to services provided on site, there are Pharmacy staff that provide a clinical pharmacy service to community units. These units include community hospitals in Felixstowe and Aldeburgh, an intermediate care unit in Ipswich, a minor injuries unit in Felixstowe (all of which are part of Ipswich Hospital) and a hospice. These units are visited regularly by the team who provide support and advice for medicines optimisation. All prescriptions are clinically screened by the pharmacist and supplies of medicines are arranged by the Pharmacy technicians who will assess the suitability of patients’ own medicines for use on the ward and for discharge.

A pharmacy service is also provided to community clinical specialities such as reproductive health, sexual health, dental clinics, chiropody and podiatric medicine and outreach minor surgical units.
